dockflooded Thought you might enjoy these pictures of this year's first Nor'easter taken dockside at FBYC on October 15, 2002. These are views from your T dock. We had the opportunity to chat with a couple of members. Great club, great hospitality.

Thank you.

PS I did mention to one member - dock boards were floating, probably need to nail down a few.

Closing Day Regatta

Offshore Racing
closing2002 Action pictures posted! See Photos

The Closing Day Regatta was started in a brisk cool breeze under clear skies, a typical fall day on the Chesapeake! Eleven boats started and raced in pursuit format (staggered starts) and raced two laps out in the bay with lots of reaching (great for the non-spinnaker and J-105s) and sailed up into Fishing Bay to finish off the club dock.

There were six spinnaker boats and five non-spinnaker. Shamrock took the honors followed by Eagerness, Wavelength and Loose Cannon. Pictures of the starts, a windward mark rounding and some finishes are posted at

Thanks to Waddy Garret for organizing the 12.9 Mile race course …

Indian Summer Regatta, October 12-13

David Hazlehurst on

Club News
Indian Summer Results now available.
Some 40 skippers ignored the dire weather forecast and enjoyed good racing Saturday and so-so racing Sunday plus a surfeit of good fellowship after racing on both days. All of the racers were winners and the only losers were those who chose to stay home. Before discussing the event it's appropriate to acknowledge the help that so many gave, and that is so essential for running a regatta. Most of the help was recruited beforehand but there were a good number who agreed to do double duty and some few who were pressed into service and appeared to do this willingly. Those who must be acknowledged, albeit as a group, are the members who …
